Title: Dick Haymes Sings For You
Artist: Dick Haymes
Catalogue No: SEPIA 1023
Barcode: 5055122110231
Release Date: 8 September 2003

One of the most popular male vocalists of the 1940s, Dick Haymes is often judged as having possessed one of the best baritone voice of the 20th Century!

In 1931, aged fifteen, Haymes made his debut as a singer in a hotel in New Jersey and was subsequently asked to sing for the summer. He then headed for Hollywood where he took a job without pay singing on Los Angeles radio station KHJ. To supplement his income he found work as an extra at MGM Studios and in his free time Haymes composed songs.

One day in 1939 when he was trying to sell his songs to bandleader Harry James he ended up being hired as a vocalist. His deep baritone voice quickly won over the critics and the public, and he remained with the band until 1942, before finding a home with Tommy Dorsey where he replaced Frank Sinatra. After going solo in early 1943, Haymes soon had his own CBS radio network program and a recording contract with a major label which gave him a string of hits through to 1951 both solo and with Helen Forrest, another ex-Harry James singer. He also signed a contract with 20th Century-Fox and embarked upon a very successful film career, during which he starred in many of the top Fox musicals of the era, including "Irish Eyes Are Smiling", "Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe" and "State Fair".

Haymes charted in America a total of 45 times from 1943 up until 1951. Of the 25 tracks featured here, many are appearing on CD for the first time. Amongst them are an early standard recorded in 1945 - "Where Or When", a duet with Patty Andrews (of The Andrews Sisters) - "Can I Come in For A Second" and the four country and western tracks he recorded in 1949.
